In light of Government announcements to avoid non-essential contact, the Brewery Arts Centre has taken the difficult decision to close our building to the public from 17th March 2020 until at least 29th March 2020.

Should you wish to contact us during this time please email

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented situation, and very best wishes to everyone.
